U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller said more than $642,000 in federal funding is on its way to West Virginia to help residents learn about the Affordable Care Act.
The Democrat said $365,758 is headed to West Virginia Parent Training and Information to help people with limited literacy, disabilities and in rural areas. The remainder -- $276,617 -- is going to Advance Patient Advocacy to work with medical centers.
The Department of Health and Human Services funding is intended to help residents navigate new coverage options and enroll in health care plans under so-called health insurance marketplaces.
Rockefeller said the funding will give West Virginians the opportunity to sit down with experts to determine what best meets their needs.
